debates, president obama stumping in california, mitt romney also on the road after what many saw as a lackluster debate last week for the president in particular. he's hoping the new lower unemployment rate will give him a boost. the president is attending a fund-raiser in los angeles, and then he heads on to ohio. mitt romney in the meantime is spending the weekend in florida where yesterday he spent much of the day preparing for the next debate. it's a must-win state if he wants to capture the white house. >>> and, of course, you don't want to forget that the vice presidential debate is this thursday. joe biden and paul ryan squaring off. our cnn coverage begins at 7:00 eastern time. >>> all right. some news for your car out there. honda is recalling 268,000 crvs, its popular suv, model years 2002 to 2006. they say there's a faulty window stwich in the driver's side door, and if it gets wet it can start fire. no crashes or injuries have been reported but honda knows a four-switch fires. >>> space travel will be a business with a launch tonight. spacex wilt pd send the first pri
the weekend. then coming here the president has come to california as kind of his atm. he does a lot of fund-raisers here from the hollywood set and others and has been able to pull in a lot of cash. that's primary focus of the president's trip. as you pointed out he's having the big concert with big names, earth, wind and fire, katy perry and george clooney is expected to deliver remarks as well. in addition to that, the president will also be meeting with what the campaign is calling some high-dollar donors. these are people who have been consistently raising big amounts of money for the president. about a dozen of them, the president will be meeting privately with them. then later tonight we'll also be having a fund-raising dinner with, again, high rollers, high donors, if you will. people who are putting up $40,000 each for the dinner. so the president expected to pull in about $9.5 million, not only in fund-raisers here in los angeles but also tomorrow up in northern california. >> $40,000 dinner, dinner is expensive out in hollywood. >> reporter: that's right. >> fund-raising, the pres
to somebody else is hard to do. but we know that the california science center will do a great job, and to see it get here is even better. >> and don said, why don't we talk about it, why don't you just take the wings off this thing? not so easy. >> not so easy, it as a thermal protection component, it would be a big challenge to take those things off. could you do it? yes, not a smart thing to do. so that is why we had to develop the route and get through the city. >> and you know, don, stephanie waits, and every time she hears "tight corners," the problem is there were trees in some neighborhoods they didn't want to cut down, the controversy, they had to cut down about 400 trees, science center said they put back two for every one they cut down. but there were some older neighborhoods where they didn't want to cut them down. so it made the clearances literally just a couple of inches on either side. and that has slowed them down, but these people have been really great troopers, you know, out here for four or five hours already, waiting on space shuttle "endeavour." so you know what a big ev

and professor of public policy at the university of california at berkeley. secretary rice, let me start with you on the terror front and the obama administration. do you buy david axelrod saying that president obama labeled it terror the next day? >> well, it didn't sound from that context as if he labeled it as terrorism the next day, anderson. but it does seem credible to me that the white house is sharing with the public what it knows when it knows. it's very difficult to get good information immediately and as this issue becomes clearer, i think the white house has made a credible effort to tell the americans what it, in fact, knows about it. >> ari fleischer, what about that? david axelrod is also saying look, an investigation, you have to be prudent, you're president of the united states, you can't jump to conclusions. >> i have a fair amount of sympathy. i stood on that podium at the white house in the case of attacks on our country. you have to wait until you have all the facts to speak. but in this case, i think there was a willful pattern in this administration of downplaying

of los angeles to the california science center. it was supposed to be there already, but there were a few bumps on the road. >> randi in places in people waited eight, nine hours for the shuttle to arrive, and when it did, they found it was worth every second. >> reporter: endeavour had the road all to itself. a parade of one. in tinseltown where seeing stars is ho-hum, endeavour made folks starry-eyed. it and it alone had everyone's attention. cameras snapped. people looked on in awe. this was the fist designated viewing area outside the forum arena where the los angeles lakers once played. endeavour was way ahead of schedule at that point, but it wouldn't last. outside an area mall the second designated viewing area some people stood and waited more than eight hours for the shuttle to arrive, and when it did, it was well after dark. the most difficult part of the 12-mile journey to the california science center was more difficult than expected. endeavour came within inches of trees. so many people lined the streets pressing as close as they could get, so many delicate turns, that
is a democrat of california and senator, we appreciate your taking the time. i know you're out on the campaign trail. fighting for the president today. let me just ask you this question. >> and -- and congresswoman -- and congresswoman shelly berkeley. i wanted to make sure you knew, i was also out in nevada, campaigning for shelly berkeley, who we're trying to make a senator from the house. first, i have to say, the president did put the wars back on budget. so it is true that george w. had them off budget. they're on budget. so that criticism is wrong. let me tell you how i respond to everything you said. and i listened to it intently. >> yes. >> i've run 11 successful elections for myself. they're hard, they're difficult. but it is true, at the end, you still have those undecideds. and even though president obama, as you point out, has talked about these ideas. for example, one you didn't mention is taking away tax breaks for companies who ship jobs overseas. the reason he wants to put this together, they're still undecided, and the republicans are complaining, where's the beef, where's the
to the california science center. now, what we can show you is, okay, we have the wing that's really close to that tree. if we look over on the other side of the street, you can now see the platform starting to move. but you can see it's almost out of room on the other side of the street. so it's a very, very delicate maneuver. this platform that it's on, each of the wheels can move individually. it can go side to side and backwards and forwards so they're trying to reposition it right now to get around that tree and try to save it. we have asked a couple of the workers here who are managing this whole process whether they're going to cut the tree down or not. they say they don't know. they have tried throughout the process to save as many trees as possible. 400 have been cut down along the route. they'll be replaced 2 for 1, but some of the residents of the communities have been upset because they don't want to lose any trees. we're still watching the process and we're going to see whether it gets by the tree. you can watch as the shuttle is now pointing toward the crowd, almost. you know

to governor of california, his new book is called "total recall." it's out today and it details his entire life, including the now infamous affair with his house keeper that led to the breakup of his marriage with maria shriver. schwarzenegger talked about that affair in an interview with "60 minutes." >> i think it was the stupidest thing i've done in the whole relationship. it was terrible. i inflicted tremendous pain on maria and unbelievable pain on the kids. >> margita thompson was a press secretary forren or old schwarzenegger during his first term as governor. nice to see you. thank you for talking with us. i thought it was -- what did you think of the interview? let me ask that first. >> well, i think it was an interesting interview. it's definitely going to generate sales for the book. he is a fascinating person. he is someone who has a penchant for having a big personality. and he's also someone that shows that he's human and he's flawed. and so, with that greatness comes a fatal flaw, and it was interesting to watch last night. >> i thought what was interesting, as well, margita
orange color have lost more jobs to china. you have oregon and texas. look at california over here. 3% of their jobs in the past dozen years lost to china. the candidates say this is largely happening because while america allows its value of the dollar to be set by the free market, and that determines the cost of labor, that china manipulates the cost of its currency. so it can control the cost of labor. because they have a lot of people they need to employ. they'd like to keep labor costs low to attract a lot of business. now, it's difficult to do a one-to-one comparison, because productivity is very different between the u.s. and china. but let's look at it this way as much as we can. if you had a u.s. factory and you wanted to produce something there, by the time you paid a laborer all the benefits and salary, that's going to come out to about $34 an hour, to do the same thing in china is going to be more like $2 an hour. so the chinese government has structured its infrastructure and everything else to support this idea, to bring factories in, to take advantage of that cheap labo
's final destination of the california science center in los angeles. the shuttle was supposed to arrive last night, but the trip took a little longer than expected. dozens of trees had to be cut along that route to accommodate the 78-foot wide shut, you heard about that over the past few weeks or so. and in the course of the last 24 hours, they had to do some trimming along the way. but it was still a very tight fit. and so that shuttle soon to be in its final destination spot right there in los angeles. >>> president barack obama spending a second straight day in williamsberg, virginia preparing for his next debate with mitt romney. that show you were happens tuesday night, today one of obama's top advisors told cnn the president was disappointed his performance in the first debate and knows he has to be more energetic this tuesday. mitt romney is also hunkering down preparing for the debate. senator rob portman of ohio has been in kind of a mock role as president obama in those debate sessions. >>> the presidential contenders will square off for the second time tuesday night, our spec
